With its 13 (subsequently 14) volumesof text and 3 volumes of prints, the Dictionnaire Universel dHistoire Naturelle is one the great scientific works of the 19th century, and made the natural world accessible to an educated audience. The prints in the Dictionnaire dOrbigny are among the best produced in this field during the 19th century, strikingly realistic thanks to their great precision and detail, and the beauty of the lines and colours. The apogee of scientific drawing. (Eric Baratay, Un théâtre des bêtes : les planches du Dictonnaire Universel dHistoire Naturelle).
